After eighteen months off the map, Writtalin’s favorite electropop band is back with new music in tow. Ahead of their forthcoming album, the LA four-piece Parade of Lights have given us a taste of what’s to come in the form of “Touch,” a bright, hook-packed piece of effervescent pop, the likes of which has been sorely missing from the indie scene lately.
Gone are the heavily vamped guitars of their debut, frontman Ryan Daly and the gang instead pursuing a straight-forward dancefloor vibe that begs listeners to abandon their seats and loose themselves in the rhythm. It still has a personality that is distinctly their own though, boasting an earnestness that most club bangers can only fake at best. “Stand up, my friend, find love again,” belts Daly atop jittering synths. It’s the kind of message that Parade of Lights’ brand of dance-ready pop rock demands by virtue of its sound, but such sincerity drives the point home. If their new record is half as fun and involving as “Touch” suggests, then the world of indie pop is about to heat up.
Listen to “Touch” NOW on Spotify and Apple Music. And be sure to check out their 2015 album “Feeling Electric” in the same place.
